This road trip begins and ends in Anchorage. We make a 700 km loop around south-central Alaska. Every day we ski in a different area and then spend the night in a hotel or a bed and breakfast. The itinerary listed below is based on ski touring, but mechanized options exist, including heli-skiing, catskiing and the Alyeska lifts. Note that unfortunately, there is no real off-piste skiing itineraries accessible by ski lifts in the south-central region of Alaska.

Our first base is the town of Girdwood where we stay in a comfortable bed and breakfast and ski daily at Turnagain Pass or Summit Lake in the Kenai Mountains. After Girdwood, we travel to Whittier and ferry across the wilderness coast from Prince William Sound to Valdez. We stay four nights in a hotel in Valdez, skiing each day at Thompson Pass in the Chugach. To finish this trip, we drive along the Glenn Highway, Alaska’s most scenic route, crossing the imposing massifs of Chugach, Wrangell and Talkeetna. Along the way, we make a last stop to ski at Hatcher Pass in the Talkeetna before returning to Anchorage.
